Happy Healthy Monday
Well I know I am a bit late in the post. Holidays always throw me off a day. Well I have somehow managed to hurt my good leg/knee so I have been hobbling around all weekend. Icing the knee seems to have helped but no idea what I did. It started Thursday and I am sure standing at a concert all night Friday didn’t help. Although Adam Lambert was so worth it. I didn’t know what to expect but he puts on a great show. Would go see him again.
So I am once again regrouping. I feel like such a broken record. I truly believe that if I lose some of this weight my legs would not hurt so much. Why this hasn’t motivated me to do this I haven’t a clue. I honestly feel like a big fat ball of lard sitting on the couch. Ugh… So regrouping and trying to figure out what I can do to keep me going and not give up every 2-3 weeks. I mean really. Ugh.
Hope you all have a great week.
